Anyone else having issues where they completely lose data? I'm not currently in a 4G location, so I only get a pretty consistent 3G signal. Well, the other day (maybe 2 days after I got the phone) I lost my 3G signal, but I figure I would give it awhile to see if the problem fixed itself (there was a thunderstorm, thought it would be related somehow). The following day, it was still either no service or 1X something, I could still get texts but I could not use anything that required data. I turned airplane mode off/on several times, no luck. I stopped by the local Verizon store to give them a look, they turned it completely off and back on, and 3G service was back.
Fast forward to a few seconds ago (a few days following my previous outage) and the same thing happened. Pandora just stopped working since it was looking for service, I toggled the airplane mode a few times, again no luck. Turn it off and back on, 3G service restored. Should I expect to have to do this for the rest of the time I have this phone? Seems a bit ridiculous...I havent had the phone for 2 weeks and I'm already hard-resetting it to bypass malfunctions?
Another issue I have is, like many other people, the sound through Netflix is horrible and scratchy. Pandora seems to be fine, I haven't got around to testing other sound-based apps, but I'm hoping it's just Netflix, and hoping even more that its a software issue that can be resolved instead of a hardware issue that I'll be stuck with for the next 2 years.
Lastly, battery life. I see that people are getting decent rates, but for me, I cannot leave the phone unplugged throughout a single day with what I consider very light use (mostly texting and light surfing on occasion). I was getting about 5-7 hours on a charge with the standard battery, with Cell and Standby using most of my charge. This is not really a major issue since Costco hooked me up with an insane accessory swag bag that ensures I'll have SOMEWHERE to plug it in everywhere I go, I was just hoping that I would be able to possibly go a day with out seeking juice...
